weekend. we have 80 degrees. we have windchills in the 20s. we have storms. we have very strong winds. here is the latest on storm team4 radar p.m. some very light showers out there right now in parts of carroll county and into parts of virginia. for most of us it's dry this evening. just isolated showers into the overnight hours. what we're really noticing, how mild it is, the cloud cover, and the winds. looking further back to the west, you can see more impressive lines of storms. this will be our weathermaker tomorrow. a cold front that moves through the area ultimately during the evening hours. ahead of it we'll be dealing with rain at times. currently we're in the 70s. low 70s. back around the i-81 corridor down into the 60s. washington at 73. annapolis as well. for tomorrow morning not a bad start as far as the temperatures are concerned, but you want to grab the umbrella. 66 at 7:00 a.m. by lunchtime we're in the low 70s. a high tomorrow near 80. we hit our high at 4:00 and by 7:00 p.m. temperatures w b

we'll have rain on and off at times throughout the day. it looks like the best chance of you dealing with rain will be mainly during the morning hours, but there's also the potential for more scattered showers during the afternoon and early evening hours, and maybe a few rumbles of thunder. no widespread severe weather is in the forecast tomorrow but it is one of those days where we're warm enough, we're humid enough where any storm that does form could have some strong gusty winds and some heavy rain. about a low to moderate risk of some heavy rain and a moderate risk of some high winds and any thunderstorms. even if we don't see the storms, you're going to be noticing the winds tomorrow gusting at at least 30 to 35 miles an hour throughout the day. so the weekend outlook, we have a few nats games friday and saturday. showers are possible at both games. kite festival on saturday. shower possible there. cherry blossom ten-miler, windy, cold, brutal, not very nice. sunday morning it will feel like temperatures are in the 20s when you factor in the winds. the thermometer reading about 40 degrees. saturday a high of 64.
6:50 pm
some rain around, maybe during the morning and midday hours looks to be the best timing. sunday we'll keep it dry but again we trade off that sunshine for very blustery conditions, and then monday, tuesday, wednesday, and thursday, temperatures kind of up and down and in the mid-50s. very springlike forecast over the next seven days. >> that's the kind we like. thanks, amelia. sports coming up. wizards' playoff hopes, boy, are they fading fast. and one of them is letting everybody know he's not happy about it at all. >> here is lester holt. >> ahead for us, we're gathering late details on the deadly shoot out at a virginia bus station this afternoon. the stars of the u.s. women's soccer team call for equal pay with the men. and frozen in time. how couples are donating embryos left over from in vitro.

playoffs just yet but after last night's debacle in sacramento, it's fair to say they're pretty much done. every game has become a must-win for the wizards so it makes you scratch your head as to how a team could lose this badly to a squad that has nothing to play for like the kings. not much happiness for the wizards and their fans these days. late last night the wizards couldn't get off the sleep train. urgency not a key word these days for a squad fighting for their playoff lives. not much of that against sacramento last night. the wizards have lost two in a row now. they're 3 1/2 games back of that final playoff spot in the east and bradley beal is fed up with his teammates' effort. >> to me it felt like we just gave up. a great opportunity to make the playoffs but just not hungry enough. i guess we kind of feel like we're already in the playoffs for some reason. either that or we just want to get to the
